to medicare, medicaid, and social security will not be affected, and neither will national security. all other discretionary government programs will. finally, i have called for a bipartisan fiscal commission, a panel of democrats and republicans who would sit down and hammer out concrete deficit reduction proposals by a certain deadline. we have heard plenty of talk and yelling about deficits, and it is time to come together and make the painful choices we need to eliminate those deficits. this past week, 53 democrats and republicans voted for this commission in the senate, but it failed when seven republicans who had co-sponsored the idea in the first place suddenly decided to vote against it. it is one thing to have an honest difference of opinion about something. i will always respect those who take a principled stand for what they believe, even if i disagree with it. what i will not accept is changing positions because it is good policy. i will not accept opposition for opposition's sake. i am eager and ready to work with anyone who is serious about solving the real problems facing our pe

and medicare? caller: we have to, absolutely. this is where term limits would be very effective. these politicians are now so beholden to their special interests that they cannot tackle those issues because they are afraid they will live get reelected. we have to give the president the line-item veto. i would like to have the president with just 16-year term as well. without term limits, we are putting it on congress. if they do not keep the budget within a certain ratio of the gross national product or whenever they have to do, they cannot run for reelection. just like state governments, they have to balance the budget and if they cannot, we will not re-elect them. host: we will leave it there. jack, in the pan and line. caller: i know the the washington culture needs to change, if you see a building burning you do not ask if we need to put it out. but a couple of comments about fair and balanced. c-span is great. i am wondering how people are talking about the lack of the merits here. what i would like to say is there was a caller earlier talking about how we need to elect peo

's true. we're a large medicare contractor and have been for many, many years. we're accustom to the environment we work in. a big piece of the pay force for expansion of this sort of thing did come out of the medicaid advantage. it was part of the discussion we were having, whether that was an appropriate way to do it. there are things that happened in that program that are powerful and positive. i think that's part of the conversation as we go forward. whatever we're going to do, how are we going to pay for it? as we make those decisions, we'll have to look back at our company and decide, how does that work for us. >> let's hear from brian in the u.s. >> wall street is trying to figure out how beneficial. it is to companies like yours and all the new customers. can you just talk about some of the projections? say it goes through as it is, what it would mean to the bottom line of your company. >> it's hard to actually know. until the details are worked out, we're never going to really understand the implications of where these exchanges are going to fit, how many people are l
without going in and tackling medicare and medicaid and social security. it is -- again, it's 19% of the budget. but it is a strong, strong message that he's actually sending to those independent voters that have been going away. obviously, some democratic leaders on capitol hill have to understand that, right? >> well, i think they have to. it doesn't mean started negotia balance the budget. post the 1994 election. it's almost as though obama doesn't want to wait for the election to start doing that. he's trying it out now and see if it works for him. >> and he's doing something bill clinton did so masterfully. you listen to that last sound clip that you played of these tax incentives. there's not huge. they're no overarching. he's not talking about revamping one-sixth of the economy. but it helps middle americans right now with tax incentives. and i think it's more significant than bill clinton's school uniforms. but it's those type of proposals that send a message to americans what kind of president he is. and right now, again, after massachusetts, it sounds like he's striking
of the reasons -- that's one of the reasons we tried to pass making sure that doctors treating medicare patients knew what they would be getting years out so that medicare would have the stability that it needs. i yield back. >> i thank the gentleman, madam speaker. i would say again, somehow in the gentleman's memory of these past years, there is something that is left out, and that is that this body and congress, because during the clinton years, the clinton years that saw prosperity, there was a republican-controlled congress and republican-controlled congress yielded tax policies that we believed could once again get us back on track in the same way, all the job losses that the gentleman continues to recite and point fingers and blame on the prior administration, if we're going to play that game, i would say that since his party has taken control of this body, we've lost in this country 6.1 million jobs. as he says, none of the job losses are acceptable. i would say there are many ways to look at these figures and who was responsible for what and could claim credit for such. but at the end o

talking but deliver. >> thirteen times against voting for the minimum wage. 13 times to cut medicare. he has voted for trade deals like after that send jobs overseas. he is the leader in the senate for privatizing social security. 98% voting record with george bush. so what's behind all the talk? i record that hurts pennsylvania. >> i'm bob casey and i approve this message. >> one of the argus were concerned about that he could make is that he was given for pennsylvania, that he had the seniority to bring a lot of projects on, a lot of jobs on. it took him a while to get out of that message but at the time we started running this, he had finally started talking about that. that's why he talks about delivering for pennsylvania. we wanted to say, no, here is what he is doing to regular pennsylvanians. so it's the set up with a positive and a follow through with the negative. and also reacting, anticipating where he was likely to go with the one message that was going to do him the most good. and what was going to be a tough year for him. we do a lot of work for the esc see, the democratic
in november? also, are you willing -- the government cannot take its hands off my medicare? >> we may get at some point of crisis in which we cannot any longer avoid facing this issue. t(we are hoping to point out tht that crisis is sufficiently imminent said that we have to move ahead. we think that is likely to be persuasive. it is not that the leadership of the congress and the administration did not know about this problem. it is not that they do not know what some of the options are. but so far, partisanship has prevailed and we hope we can turn that around. >> i think it is obvious to the leadership in both houses know the problem is a big one. they know it is a bad one. if we can just add to the trepidation, to the fear that this is something really big and that we'd better think big and at bigç -- and act big, so politically we are doing something we would not otherwise do. if we cannot do that, we are not addressing the problem. one more. >> "the new york times". i want to know, especially from the senator, one of the biggest things is problems facing the congressional white ho
